If this is Islam, I am embarrassed

“MA, did you read about the Indira case?” my daughter asked, referring to the landmark ruling of the unilateral conversion of M. Indira Gandhi’s three children to Islam which the Federal Court declared null and void.

“Yup. Good news isn’t it?” I replied.

  • i have enjoyed reading your column all along. i just have something to add of which i am uncertain if you will be in agreement.
    "Every Muslim leader, every Muslim authority and every Muslim scholar who keep reminding us that Malaysia is an Islamic nation should be reminded that constitutionally Malaysia is a Secular Nation.
    Im glad of ku lis and HRH statement on the state of Jakim and the recent judgement of the Federal Court.

  • Someone said "when I travel to the West I see Islam but I dont see Muslims but when I'm back in Malaysia, I see Muslims but I dont see Islam....."

  • Mere lips services in most of the Muslim Institution in Malaysia. To their hour of needs there are lots of superflous and touching renditions of the beautiful humanity and humility as depicted in the holy book but when actuall calling comes in it is gone faster than the marvel hero "Flash" in a dash. Hypocrisy at its best without shame.

  • Nine years too late. For a mother, it's like a lifetime sentence. And they can't keep under wraps any longer. GE is just round the corner and the Jibby guy needs every little vote to win esp from the non Bumis. It is really not the nine years of waiting, ya?

Leaders who think of themselves and play the religious sentiments.....just look at how they day DAP is anti Islam! Is DAP anti Islam, by the way?

  • I hope you are not just a story teller as the foot note describes you. I believe you are more than that. For grown up adults with a family of their own and with good education and cognitive ability to discriminate and differentiate sensibly, any stand they take is seldom reversed or changed by the influence of others. It is said that if you are intelligent, independent- minded and strong-willed you will hardly bend with the wind.

    Let us say that the following scenario is applicable to you. You have a personal copy of the Holy Quran in which you have blacked out the phrase "kill the infidels" in it. You get married and later your growing up children ask why and what have you struck out, will you explain and justify your action to them?

  • No one is a threat to Islam , ONLY the muslims themselves . It's a shame that Islam have been destroy by these fanatics. Perhards Mahathir is right, too much inbreeding.
